Billing Cycle

Bills are mailed out on the 15th of the month. The customer is responsible for paying the billed amount within 15 days after the date of the mailing of the bill. If not paid within 15 days, a penalty of ten percent (10%) of the amount of the current months charges attaches as a delinquent fee. This amount (being the Billing Cycle bill plus the penalty) becomes the rate and charge for the next billing cycle for which no payment was made. For all billing cycles not paid when due, the above methodology shall be used. After 90 days delinquency, a lien will be placed on the property and small claims court action may be taken. The amount of the Rates and Charges, the compounded penalty, and a reasonable attorney fee may be recovered by the District in a civil action. Additionally liens may be certified with the Hendricks County, Indiana, Auditor's Office.
